The legal battle over Orange County sheriff's deputies' pensions may be headed north. A Superior Court judge said Friday he planned to grant a motion to move the case to Los Angeles County, after Orange County's pension fund and the deputy's union argued that the case presented too many conflicts to be tried locally. The county has sued the pension board seeking to reduce deputies' pensions that were granted under a 2001 labor agreement. Judge Thierry P. Colaw said he would issue a final written ruling in coming days.

A Superior Court judge issued a final written ruling Monday ordering Orange County's legal case seeking to roll back deputies' pensions to be handled in the Los Angeles County courts. Judge Thierry P. Colaw agreed with an argument by Orange County's public employee retirement board that the case could not be tried in Orange County because it involved a dispute between two public agencies within the county, and concurred that Los Angeles would be a "neutral county" close enough to be convenient for all parties in the case.

A judge has potentially cleared the way for the expansion of Long Beach Airport. Superior Court Judge Thierry Patrick Colaw said in a ruling Friday that the city did not violate state law when it approved an environmental report for the expansion. The report says the expansion won't affect noise or air quality. The Long Beach Unified School District, which filed the lawsuit in 2006, argued that dozens of schools would be affected by noise and demanded the city pay for soundproofing those campuses.

A judge ruled Thursday that water quality standards designed to protect the region's beaches from polluted storm-drain runoff will remain in place, at least for the time being. Orange County Superior Court Judge Thierry Patrick Colaw granted a request from a coalition of environmental groups that sought to keep the standards in place while the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board complied with the judge's order to review its runoff standards. This summer, Colaw had ruled in favor of a consortium of local inland cities and a building industry association that had filed a lawsuit -- against the state Water Resources Control Board and the local board -- seeking to overturn the regulations.

The ruling is a significant victory for the small police force, which was widely criticized for using 17-year-old Chad MacDonald to buy drugs after officers arrested him for methamphetamine possession.
